Soil mixes

It is quite possible that we have an equal amount of soil as we do plants in The Palm Room right now

Here are the types of soil mediums we can provide you with

Cactus Mix

This mix is regionally formulated for the Pacific Northwest.  It is a blend of 40-50% pumice, processed forest products, processed softwood bark, compost and composted worm castings.

This blend of ingredients provides the perfect soil structure and drainage for all of your cacti, succulent and desert plants.

Bonsai Mix

This mix is regionally formulated for the Pacific Northwest.  It is a blend of 50-60% processed softwood bark, pumice and composted worm castings.

This blend of ingredients provides an open and well-drained mix which is an ideal growing environment for all bonsai.  This soil mix can also be used for cacti and succulents.

Potting Soil + Fertilizer

Perfect for all tropical plants, this mix is regionally formulated for the Pacific Northwest.  It is a blend of 45-55% Canadian Sphagnum peat moss, compost, pumice, perlite and composted worm castings.

Also available in a larger bag:

Charcoal

100% Charcoal.  An excellent soil conditioner, charcoal improves aeration and drainage, absorbs excess moisture and removes odors.  Think of charcoal as nature’s soil conditioner.

We use and recommend 1 part charcoal to 9 parts potting mix in all terrariums and plants potted in containers with no drainage hole.
